DSLWP is a lunar formation flying mission for low frequency (1-30 MHz) radio astronomy, amateur radio and education, consists of two microsatellites. As a part of the Change 4 mission, the satellites will be launched into a lunar elliptical orbit in 2018.

The amateur radio station on board DSLWP-A1 will provide telecommand uplink and telemetry / digital image downlink. An open telecommand is also designed to allow amateurs to send commands to take and download an image.

The satellites have a volume of about 50x50x40 cm3 and a mass of about 45 kg. Planning DSLWP-A1 downlinks on 435.425 MHz and 436.425 MHz and DSLWP-A2 downlinks on 435.400 MHz and 436.400 MHz.
